My 07 Yukon
#11
I would probably go with the 2nd set of headlights if you was to go with a set. But I agree with rob I would get a set of springs first especially if you go with wheels first just to make it set right and look right and then the other small cosmetics will slowly come.

The wheels are probably not going to be the first thing on my list, but when I do the wheels I'll be going lower at the same time. The headlight change though is something I want first but that's also for safety reasons. When GM did the headlights they made the Yukon's lights big but it doesn't make them better. They are very dull and the light output sucks. Halogen lights suck for these big SUVs. Plus the current headlights are scratched and oxidized.

Oh and the pictures above aren't the grilles I plan on going with. It's going to still have the chrome trim but the middle is going to be black mesh or I'm getting the Denali style grille and plasti-dipping the middle black.

Cosmetic wise that's probably about it. Anything else is going to be more for comfort and travel.

That equals to .59" im sure the extra half inch wont be a drastic change in the looks.



I like the grill upgrade.. But If it were me, I wouldnt change the headlights. Id use that money for a set of springs.

1.5" drop on some wheels will stand out more then those headlights.

Agreed !

Sorry no pics of the installation process.

I did order a Chrome GMC emblem since my "M" fell off my factory grille. But I will probably be getting the Denali grille or a mesh one in the future. Oh and I found out the my wife ordered my taillights. But I believe she got me the wrong ones. I looked at the invoice and she got me so Spyder LED tails.

So the LED Taillights came in today with a few LED bulbs (reverse and license plate bulbs). I decided to give it a go since wifey tried to surprise me. Well they're not the look I was looking for but they're not that bad. The only problem is the hyper flash with the turn signals. So these will probably last a month and then I'm ordering the proper one. Probably sell them for dirty cheap. Here are some pics...

The whole thing doesn't flash like the Escalade tails. Only half does . Also the reverse light LED bulbs I ordered doesn't fit the wiring socket. So I just put them on my Civic.

They don't look that bad imo. The flushness part would aggravate me more then anything though lol

I think he meant flashing?

I kinda prefer the way those look, if only the reverse bulb section wasn't "altezza" style and still diffused like oem. I agree the hyper blink would drive me insane.

If you do lower it I'd look into a set of helper bags for the rear that way if you ever decide to tow or haul anything decently sized you can air it up manually.
